A quieter week, this one.

The weather’s been generally good, but the shorter days seem to put all but the keen /obsessive fishers into hibernation. A shame because there’s been some great days out there.

I didn’t Saturday, the  last MotoTT trackday of the season, so I gave myself the day off.

We got the Sunday in though, headed outside Motiti and had a good start on the tarakihi.

They dropped off after midday, so we tried some shallower spots and had a couple of good hits, getting a nice amount of snapper to finish off what was a perfect day.


  • Thanks Brett for taking us out yesterday, most had a great day especially Peter who caught the big king fish.

  • Hi Brett,

    This was a trip to remember , the company, fishing , and the way we were looked after was second to none . and I have done  a lot of  trips ,

    I would like to thank You Brett and your Son Ben  , Ben was an AWESOME deck hand , we didn’t need to do anything but fish  and  no matter where you took us there was fish there ,

    The jigging for Kingi’s was un-real most of us have never seen this done , only on TV , but to do  Jigging,   hell yes it was fun.

    Once again  Brett thank you and   son Ben for a trip that we will talk about for a long time

    This is from the… BPT pig  hunting  Whanau

    Hi there my name is Phil,

    you took a group of  my best mates and I out on Saturday 24th of November 2012 for my stag do.

    I couldnt thank Brett and the deckhand enough for such a fun and memorable experience. Even though fishing was supposed to be slow then and some of the guys werent keen fishermen everyone pulled in a few and had an awesome time.

    Would highly recommend TMC to my friends and family and will be booking for future trips with you.  

    Big THANKS from Phillip, Kaye and the boys from Pukekohe.
